in the u.s. senate was 27-6. in the house, it was 136-35. four out of five republican members in both houses for civil rights. for the voting rights to follow, the republican vote in the senate was 30-2. overwhelming in all cases. i'm watching this debate over the voting rights act and i'm struck with the reality that the reason for today is the republican party. not the party of the 1960s. but the one that's backed voter suppression efforts in dozens of states and keeps on doing. every time a state passes another bill making it harder to vote, cutting down on voter days, exz e exz tending voter id requirements, you have to wonder are they doing precisely what the voter rights act was designed to stop? >> the republican party can be proud in certain regards. certainly the backing of certain men like edward durks. the question today for this young century is whether the republican party will be as proud in the future for the positions it's taking now. that's "hardball" for now.
